The Rigel Aline Collimation cap offers a convenient and affordable means of collimating a Newtonian telescope.
If you simply look down the focuser drawtube it is hard to tell where to place your eye. If you look Into Your telescope through an Aline and you will see a bright white circle surrounding your eye's pupil, making it easier to center the primary and secondary mirrors.
Fits firmly into the focuser and features a convenient highly reflective inner surface.

Arrived within 48 hours of ordering. The cap comes with instructions to help collimating but itís a very simple premise. Would appear my scope is still perfectly collimated (which was bought from FLO in April).

Great product, received very promptly and seems to have done the trick without forking out for much more expensive collimation tools! Thanks FLO!

I find this is all you need to collimate the primary and secondary mirrors of my Skywatcher 200p Newtonian.
A must for spectacle wearers
Thursday, 8 August 2019 | Mark
It may just be me but as a spectacle wearer I can find it awkward to keep my eye correctly positioned and the edge of the primary in the field of view when using a Cheshire (it usually ends up as one or the other). Because the Aline cap lets me get my eye closer to the focus tube I find it makes it much easier to see that the primary is correctly centred. I still use the Cheshire, as I find the crosswires help with the fine tweeks, but the Aline cap is so quick and simple to use as a check of the basics before and after using the Cheshire.
Does what it says on the tin

It's a collimation Cap, so not a lot more I can say other than it worked as expected and the item arrived quickly with the usual great service from FLO.

Firstly, FLO service, perfect ad normal.
This Aline works well and does exactly what it claims. Easy to use, but still comes with instructions.
